A HIsTORY or Sc'OTTIsII MOTOR VI5I IIcII: MANLTAcTcRI: George Oliver
The strange story of motor car manufacture in Scotland, told by a life-long car enthusiast with the aid of many illustrations. Tales of innovative engineering, disputed patents, dubious investments, hard work and dedication are revealed as the scene shifts from modest workshops to grandiose purpose-built factories. But all enterprises had one thing in common sooner or later they failed. In his controversial final chapter, the author gives his own considered view as to why they did.
